-- with the start of every new year there are lots of people making resolutions but the hardest part is actually sticking to the doctor -- I know one way to keep your resolutions don't make any.
Well -- -- and -- -- -- An American Psychological Association studied this and said 88%.
Of people there.
It's all due to something in the brain called the pre frontal cortex where will power comes from.
Here's how you avoid -- make it doable my son playing your -- clear about what that room -- by next week.
Make it defined what is it you're gonna plan on doing and make it something you enjoy doing combined activities give yourselves a reward.
Tell other people you can do -- I'm gonna quit smoking.
Don't tell yourself tell everyone around -- the people you love so that they can remind you about it.
That's an interest did you make any as a doctor I did.
I'm not gonna say don't -- if you want to make America and it's realistic if you just put the people that it's -- cannot be reached.
Whether it's financial -- whatever it is that's difficult you have to be specific I'm gonna lose weight is meaningless but I'm gonna lose ten pounds I'm gonna do it this way.
It's good it's gonna be great also reward yourself you know something every two pounds five pounds and you lose get yourself something that you like except food.
And what I don't usually do if I have a goal item -- so I have to put this sticky on the mirror and I have to seed every day that works really well for me.
And a brain knows that by repetition.
By repeating the same thing over two months it becomes part of your behavior.
But you know -- I have a great feeling about 2013.
And I think we're gonna do great job.
Me too I share your optimism and I just wonder if it's important just as important to make resolutions that don't -- that to do with one's health.
But -- get to do with other things like reaching out and and talking to friends that you absolutely was -- a long time and that might help you actually get all the stuff I don't I wanna -- -- final plug -- for exercise because I'm convinced from last year that it's addictive and it'll affect everything -- have smaller portion -- you'll sleep better you'll be in a better -- exercised and I we're gonna do all of that.
Thanks so much -- an -- what your resolution.
